Global Phenolic Molding Compound Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Phenolic molding compound is an adhesive used in the manufacture of plastics. It is a thermosetting resin that is produced by the reaction of phenol and formaldehyde. The importance of phenolic molding compound lies in its ability to provide strength and rigidity to plastic parts while also resisting heat and chemical corrosion.

General Grades:

The general grades are the most widely used type of phenolic molding compound. It is a thermoplastic material that can be either injection molded or cast. The growth factor in this market is high demand from various end-use industries such as automotive, construction and electrical & electronics sectors due to its properties such as high chemical resistance, abrasion resistance and good surface finish.

Ammonia-free Grades:

Ammonia-free grades are used to manufacture Phenolic Molding Compound (PMC). It is a type of plasticizer that is widely used in the molding industry. The compound has high demand from various end-use industries such as automotive, construction, electrical & electronics and consumer goods. Increasing application scope of PMCs in these industries along with growing environmental concerns regarding the harmful effects of ammonia on human health and environment are expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Application Insights:

The automotive application segment led the global phenolic molding compound market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a revenue-based CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Phenolic compounds are used as general-purpose materials for manufacturing automotive parts, owing to their superior mechanical properties and chemical resistance.

Phenolic resins are used in various applications including instrument panels, seat pan frames for vehicles such as buses.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market for global PP and phenolic molding compound, accounting for 39.2% of the total revenue in 2017. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization and growth of automotive manufacturing industry in China, India, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

The product demand in Europe is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 on account of increasing application scope in aerospace & defense sector due to stringent government regulations regarding aircraft weight limits coupled with rising passenger traffic volume across major airports including London Heathrow Airport; Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport; Frankfurt Airport; Munich airport; Budapest Ferihegy International Airport among others are projected favorably impact regional growth over the next eight years         ‰t least through 2025’s end).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for lightweight and durable materials in automotive and aerospace industries
  • Rising demand from construction and electrical & electronics sectors
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of phenolic molding compounds among end-users
  • Technological advancements in manufacturing processes of phenolic molding compounds
  • Expansion of global production capacities by key players
